From his dirty-blond hair and breathtaking smile, to the abs from heaven and the irresistible V in his waistline, everything about Bodi Olympic-gold-medalist Banks screams hot piece of @$$.
Yet there’s more.
Dark shadows lurk behind his soulful, serious eyes.
I’m enamored. He’s captured me.
How can running an art foundation with Bodi Banks turns into a slow-burning, epic romance, even though he tries to push me away at every chance? How can I stay away from a broken, routine-driven man whose soul cries to be forgiven for a crime only he believes he committed? Or is that a lie?
I don’t know how many times I’ve said this already, but I just adore Meghan Quinn. Seriously adore to the almost stalkerish point. It’s OK, she knows and has accepted it. I knew from Stroked that I was going to love Bodi hard and I was absolutely right. Meghan does broken, brooding men like no other!
Bodi Banks is an Olympic gold medalist in swimming, working to his way for the next Olympics. He’s gorgeous and has an amazing body but those that are close to him know that he is a little bit socially awkward. He has a past that no child should have to endure, therefore causing him to have a difficult time interacting “normally” with others. That is until one quirky fireball named Ruby Hearts comes barreling into his life. There’s just something about her that makes him less awkward and more willing to open up. Can Ruby help Bodi break out of this awkward shell he has been living in?
First of all, I fell hard and fast for Bodi. It’s no secret that I like my men broken and brooding. It tugs at my heart and makes me want to know everything about them.
“There is something about his light brown hair, dark blue eyes, and damaged soul that calls out to me.”
Ummm….yeah. Me too, Ruby. Me, too. I just wanted to reach out to him and help him face his struggles head on.
Ruby is the perfect crazy blend for Bodi. She’s a firecracker with zero filter and one of the most random minds I’ve ever read. The thoughts and stories that come out of her are just absolutely insane and adorable. She’s so random, quirky and personable that you just can’t help but love her. She forces Bodi to really step outside of his comfort zone by being accepting and loving.
I knew going in that I was going to like Bodi but I wasn’t expecting everything to come together so perfectly with the right mixture of humor, angst, hopefulness and love. My heart broke for Bodi and Ruby not only help mend him, she helped mend broken heart over him.
Well done, Meghan! You always delivery a well packed story that captures me from start to finish. I can’t wait for Hollis’ story next. Go get this book, guys. You’ll love it!

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.
His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.
On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.
I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.
There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.
What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.
